Interview with Dakota Ditcheva above
Dakota Ditcheva (1-0) discusses her bantamweight fight against Dee Begley (1-1) at Full Contact Contender 26 on Sept. 12. Dakota also talks about this fight being moved, difficulties getting an opponent, and training with UFC flyweight Molly McCann.
“It mean I was very lucky, to be honest, and I’m lucky to be close. It’s good that we finally met up and did some rounds. It was really good, she’s top level. I kind of just go up there when I can. Obviously, she’s got a busy timetable with her schedule. We just text each other to see when we can fit some rounds in. It’s been really good, I’ve been down a few times now. It’s obviously perfect for me because I get to train with a top-level athlete like that. I’m aspiring to be in her position and be everything she is at the moment. I’m really lucky to get this experience. “
